night watch

your gliding

amongst my mist, clearing the path
and my sight

my standing

in a field of daisies, under heavy rain
and dusk

a glimpse

of fine hair half-hiding the eyes
i want on me

the grip

of my hands on your fate
and your life on my whole

a plea

let it be dark
let it be dark
eternally

in darkness there is sight if you let your eyes adjust

For years, I spent every day waiting for night to come, couldn't wait for darkness to fall, to seek out "the eyes i want on me."
